Striking the optimal balance between amplifier power, driver capability and cabinet volume, Reference Premiere subwoofers achieve maximum low frequency extension with great output, accuracy and speed.

Spun Copper Front-Firing Cerametallic Woofers

Newly designed Cerametallic™ woofers are exceptionally light and extremely rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion for higher, cleaner output using less amplifier power.

High Efficiency Class D Amplifier

The built-in, high efficiency amplifier features an analog preamp design, which maintains the original signal path for cleaner, true-to-source reproduction. The Class D output stage ensures maximum efficiency for maximum output, detail, and low frequency power
